OSHA 10-Hour General Industry Course

These materials are designed to assist trainers conducting OSHA 10-Hour General Industry outreach training for workers. Since workers are the target audience, these materials emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, and control - not standards. No attempt has been made to treat the 10 topics exhaustively.

NOTE: The materials consist of PowerPoint® presentations and lesson plans. Each presentation also includes instructor notes, which instructors are encouraged to review before giving a training presentation. Required Software: Zip file utility; Microsoft PowerPoint® 2000 or later or PowerPoint® Viewer; and Adobe Acrobat Reader.      

The Introduction Lesson gives a basic overview of OSHA’s role in prevention and elimination of work-related illnesses and injuries. It includes information about employer and employee rights and responsibilities, and a very brief look at the inspection process, reporting and recordkeeping.
